    Greetings,
    I am in the process of migrating from a SUS server to the WSUS server.
    There seems to be plenty of documentation on the registry settings
    HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU, but in the
    machines that I am working with, there is quite a bit of entries under
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate. I know that
    some of the entries in this branch are used, i.e. AccountDomainSid and
    SUSClientId and at least a couple of entries in the "Auto Update" key as I
    have deleted the branch (after exporting it!) and some of it re-created
    itself.
    Is most of the entries such as "OemInfo" and "IUControl" just leftovers from
    SUS or from when the machine was getting updates from Microsoft's Windows
    Update site?
    There seems to be no information on this at all. Below is an export of some
    of the entries I have questions about. Any light that you can shine on this
    will be appreciated.

    Thank you
